SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The present invention is directed to a new device and an improved method of manually making a metal lipped plastic fish lure with at least one hook on a leader line rigged by a novel hand held device. The hand tool has a telescopic antenna element with an open end and located next to a rod element with a right angle bend for holding the metal lip which can have a hook attached to it. A wooden handle is hollowed out for insertion of a sharp pointed spike based in a cork. The distal end of the handle can have a throughbore for insertion of a cord loop. The method of making a hooked and metal lipped lure comprises piercing a plastic lure, e.g., a minnow, with the spike. The prepared leader line has at least one hook on its end or two hooks in tandem. The pierced plastic minnow is placed on the telescopic antenna element with a small portion of the end exposed for insertion of the barbed tip of at least one hook. The opposite end of the leader line has the metal lip conventionally provided with a punched out holder strap and optionally a hook. The fisherman places the metal lip by its holder strap on the extending right angled rod. It is preferred that the length of leader line from the first hook to the second hook is taut by extending the telescopic antenna. Then the process of moving the plastic lure up the leader line to the metal lip is performed. The rigged lure can now be released from the tool by collapsing the telescopic rod. A subcombination is a metal lip jig lure, per se, on which either soft plastic bait, frozen cut bait, live bait can be hooked or dressed further with feathers, fur or animal hair.

Accordingly, it is a principal object of the invention to provide a hand tool that can form a fish lure by adding at least one hook and a metal lip attached to a leader and threading a plastic fish lure.

It is another object of the invention to provide a method of producing a flexible plastic lure with a metal lip and hooks by utilizing a novel hand tool.

It is a further object of the invention to provide a combination hand tool with a telescopic antenna for holding a lure and a terminal hook, and a separate metal lip holder.

Still another object of the invention is to provide a combination tool having a spike in its handle for piercing a plastic lure in preparation for making the hooked and metal lipped lure.

Yet another object of the invention is to provide a subcombination of a metal lip jig lure, per se, on which either soft plastic bait, frozen cut bait, live bait can be hooked or dressed further with feathers, fur or animal hair.

It is an object of the invention to provide improved elements and arrangements thereof in an apparatus for the purposes described which is inexpensive, dependable and fully effective in accomplishing its intended purposes.

These and other objects of the present invention will become readily apparent upon further review of the following specification and drawings.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT

In one aspect, shown in FIGS. 1A and 1B, the present invention is directed to a hand tool 10 for rigging a plastic fish lure 12 with a metal lip jig 14 and at least one hook 16. The tool 10 comprises a telescopic antenna-like hollow rod 18 attached to a hollow wooden handle 20. The tool 10 has a spike 22 (in dashed lines) with a sharp point 24 which is stored in a bore 29 defined in hollow handle 20 when not in use, a cork plug 26 being used to retain the spike 22 in the handle 20. The cork plug 26 can be frictionally seated at the end 28 of the handle 20. The spike 22 may be removed from the handle 20 and mounted in the hollow end of the telescoping rod 18, as shown in FIG. 1B, for forming a longitudinal throughbore 30 in the plastic minnow lure 12. The handle 20 also has another throughbore 34 proximate the distal end 28 extending transversely through the handle 20, through which a loop of cord 36 is attached. The cord loop 36 can be hung from a fisherman's belt.

The leader line 38 has been pre-rigged with a terminal hook 16 and attached to a metal lip jig 14. A second hook 40 is attached to the pre-fashioned metal lip jig 14 by a rivet 32 and spurs 33 and has a punched out strap 44. A right-angled rod 46 positioned adjacent the telescopic rod 18 has a rubber collar 48 for conveniently abutting the metal lip 14 or for wrapping line in a slot in the rubber collar 48.

A first outer brass tubing 41 having a closed end 42 fits axially in the hollow wooden handle 20 and extends out from the end of the handle 20 opposite the cork 26. A second inner brass tubing 43 fits slidingly inside the first outer tubing 41 with a wire 45 extending from its bottom end which rests on the closed end 42 of the first outer tubing 41 when the inner tubing 43 is in a retracted position, so that the top end of the tubing does not slide down into the outer tubing 41, but remains at least one inch above the end of the outer tubing 41. When the spike 22 is inserted in the open end 49 of inner tubing 43, a plug 51, e.g. a glue plug, approximately an inch from the open end 49 prevents the spike 22 from going further into the second tubing 43, leaving about two inches of the spike 22 extending from the open end 49 of inner tubing 43.

In FIG. 2, the completed lure 50 is depicted with the hooks 16 and 40 separated by a hidden leader line 38 formed by the following process.

The process of forming the rigged lure 50 begins with removing the spike 22 from the handle 20 and inserting the spike 22 into the open end 49 of inner tubing 43, the telescoping rod 18 being in a retracted position, as shown in FIG. 1B. A lure or item of bait, such as a plastic minnow 12, is inserted longitudinally over the telescoping rod 18, tail end 52 first, the pointed end 24 of the spike 22 piercing the minnow and defining a longitudinal bore 30 in the minnow 12. The minnow 12 is threaded down over the telescoping rod 18, and the spike 22 is removed from the rod 18, leaving a small length of the inner tubing 43 exposed. The barb of the terminal hook 16 is now placed in the open end 49 of the telescopic rod 18. The metal lip jig rig 14 is attached to the right-angled rod 46 by its punched out strap 44. The telescoping rod 18 is moved to the extended position shown in FIG. 1A to stretch the leader line 38 tight. The plastic lure 12 is now pushed up over hook 16 and down the leader line 38. The head of the minnow 12 is attached to the second hook 40 by sliding the lure over the neck 58 of the metal lip jig rig 14 and piercing the minnow 12 with the barb of second hook 40, and the base of the tail is attached to the first hook 16 to form the finished product, i.e., the rigged lure 50. The telescoping rod 18 is retracted, hook 16 is removed from inner tubing 43, and metal lip jig 14 is removed from rod 46. This rigging procedure can be performed with the inventive tool by the fisherman while fishing. Thus, an efficient and quick method of rigging a plastic lure with a metal lip and hooks has been shown.

The advantages of this method of rigging a plastic lure with a metal lip are that the weighted lure can be cast, trolled or jigged on the bottom. The hooks are arranged with the barbs up to minimize any snagging problems. Any plastic lure can be used, such as fish, crayfish, worms, shrimp, frogs, lizards, hellgrammites, tube tails, grubs, and the like. Even lipped bucktail lures can be made. Spinners can be attached at the rivet or the metal lip end. The metal lips can be colored. Live and frozen bait such as salmon eggs, crayfish, hellgrammites, leeches, night crawlers, and nymphs can be incorporated to make these jig lures. Fur, feathers and animal hair can be added as dressing for use with a fly or spinner rod.

One outstanding advantage of this tool 10 is the addition of bait lure to the fish lure 12 by adding a liquid bait lure composition to either the spike 22 or the end of the telescopic rod 18 before moving the lure onto the leader line 38.

In FIG. 3, a metal lipped jig 56 according to the present invention is shown enlarged having a bulbous metal lip portion 14, such as a metal lip made from brass coated with nickel, with one strap 44, which is punched out of the lip or otherwise attached to the lip 14, for attachment to the fishing line, as well as attachment to rod 46 of tool 10. An elongated neck portion 58 has a rivet 32 and spurs 33 for fastening second hook 40 securely to the lip portion 14. A terminal eyelet 60 is conveniently provided on the neck portion 58 for attachment of another trailing hook, if desired, or for tying leader line 38 to metal lip jig 14. Bait such as soft plastic lures, frozen bait, and live bait can be hooked to form a lure approximately 4 inches long. The jig 56 can be approximately 1¼ inches long, {fraction (9/16)} inch wide lip 14, and ⅛ inch thick. The metal lip portion 14 can be conveniently bent at various angles to control the depth of the lure. Advantageously, the metal lip jig rig 14 eliminates the necessity of using lead weights or sinkers.

The versatility of a single metal lip jig rig device is evident when one rig device can be readily converted into numerous other lures by adding any one of bait lures such as soft plastic, frozen, live, cut, and tied on flies and streamers. The lures can also be used with various fishing rods such as spinning, fly and bait rods. A foot long trailer line having a hook can be attached to the terminal hook 16 for adding salmon eggs, a fly, etc. because the metal lip acts as a sinker without requiring lead weights.

It should be especially noted that the present invention is an ergonomic and environmentally safe alternative to the use of lead jigs being used.

It is to be understood that the present invention is not limited to the sole embodiment described above, but encompasses any and all embodiments within the scope of the following claims.
